To no surprise considering the many different cultural groups present in Nigeria, friction occurred in the 1970s resulting in a Civil War. Today, as a form of rehabilitative efforts, the National Youth Service Corps was created to continue to reconcile and reconstruct the country after the war as well as foster a sense of unity amongst all Nigerian people regardless of which ethnic group they are a part of. Youth who are no older than thirty years old are inducted into the program and are expected to successfully complete one year of service in a different ethnic group from which they were raised in (National Youth Service Corps, 2019). While reading about this part of Nigerian history and culture, one scripture did come to mind; "Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian , slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all." (Colossians 3:11, NIV) Despite their many differences, these ethnic groups are recognized as one. I do not foresee many challenges while completing the remainder of this project. However, considering the heavy European influence present in Nigeria regarding language and religion, I wonder if focusing on this group would provide me with an experience that is much different from my own culture as an African American. Nonetheless, I am still open to learning more about this culture. References: Bada, Ferdinand. "Nigerian Culture, Customs, and Traditions."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
